Former Plymouth and Hibernian manager Bobby Williamson has emerged as a contender for the vacant position of Ghana national team coach. Williamson, currently in charge of the Ugandan national team, is being discussed as a possible option for the Black Stars as they seek to fill the shoes of Milovan Rajevac.

Despite leading the country to a successful World Cup in South Africa, Rajevac could not come to an agreement to remain in charge and headed to Saudi Arabia to take over Al Ahly.

And while Marcel Desailly is a popular choice to take the Black Stars reigns, it is believed that despite wanting the job, the former AC Milan and Chelsea defender is looking for a salary of €100,000 per month. Such wage demands would seem to put his candidacy in some doubt.

All this could leave Williamson in with a very real chance of becoming the next Ghana coach, an appointment which would surely be his biggest yet.
